Mark will create an indelible Mark upon on an item, body, or Spirit. It remains on the Target as it was originally placed as long as the Target exists. The Mark Ritual in no way confers indestructibility upon a Marked item. If the Mark is on a Spirit it will always be on that body part containing the Spirit if parts of the body are separated. When the body is reformed through resurrection, the Mark will be upon the identical location it was on before resurrection.

The Mark Ritual lasts until an Unmark is cast upon it or the item is destroyed. In all other ways the Unmark Ritual is permanent, for it is instantaneous and irreversible by any other means. The Unmark Ritual is not required to be of the same Aspect as the Mark to be destroyed.

The Mark can be up to two colors chosen by the Ritual Caster and a size between one and ten square inches at the choice of the Ritual Caster. The Ritual Caster at the completion of the Ritual draws the Mark upon the Target. Casters can choose to add additional colors to the Marks by paying an increased cost of +1 DC per additional color above the initial two and +1 Reagent for every 5 total Colors they would like to use. (ex: to use 3 colors would cost DC 2 and cost 3 Reagents (base). To use 10 colors would cost DC 9 and 5 Reagents (+2 to base cost)).

This ritual requires a minimum of 3 reagents to cast. Any additional reagents required by the ritual should be of the same types as listed on the ritual scroll.
